Welcome to Tehnika-Molodehzi magazine, translated literally as Technology-Youth. We’ve not done many features on Russian science magazines that we can recall so here’s a first for us and quite possibly a first for you too assuming you’re not Russian and not a scientist. We present to you Technology-Youth – a magazine that sums up exactly what it is all about in two expertly chosen words.
First published way back when in 1933 and still going to this day Tehnika-Molodehzi has helped influence generations of young Russian egg-heads to go on to pursue a career in the sciences and a noble option it is too. For us thickies here at VoEA though we really like the pictures and if we’re honest, a career in the sciences has kind of eluded us so far and we’re probably a bit long in the tooth to change direction now. Over the years most of the former- USSR and Russia’s top scientists have featured in the magazine and as well as having some great images it is also considered a genuine science publication rather than just a ‘comic’. We’ve selected our favourites from what is a vast archive and we hope you like what we’ve chosen. Special thanks to Socialism Expo for putting these up on Flickr.
